    Oi all,
    Was digging through some old boxes of junkers and other assorted goods from my youth, and came across these-

    But wait, something isn't right here...

    Holy crap! Numberformers! Assemble! (or something like that...)-

    Anybody else know anything about these guys? I remember my mom ordering them from a catalogue when I was about 5, there was a set of Alphabetformers too, but they were to expensive at the time. Any information would be much appreciated.

    I've seen 'em around here and there and I remember them from when I was a kid but I couldn't for the life of me tell you what they were called. Any chance (and I know this is a long shot) your parents remember them or where they ordered them from?

    I have that number 7, no idea where it is now, and my parents don't seem to know where they got it, either.

    Do the Numberformers and Alphabetformers war with each other?

    Eh, 8 is the most powerful. He acquires incredible power simply by laying down on his side!

    Seriously though I had a whole box of these back in the day, they came from a catalogue or something, and they've vanished since then (possibly into the loft), but I have no idea who made them or what line they belonged to. I just know they were pretty fun.
